Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Series

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme G2-20QV000WGE

The ThinkPad X1 Extreme is the consumer version of the ThinkPad P1 workstation. From multi-monitor support to a rich MR/VR experience and even to intensive gaming, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme handles demanding computing tasks without a hitch. Lenovo is not breaking with tradition with the X1 Extreme, either. The laptop’s body is made of carbon fibre with a sturdy feel to it, and ports are easy to access on either side. The trusty ThinkPad keyboard and pointing stick make a return as well, opposite a 15.6” display that can either be configured as a non-touch Full-HD screen or a touch-enabled 4K IPS display with HDR and Dolby Vision, as well as support for a stylus with tilt function and shading. Users can opt for either an 8th-gen Coffee Lake Core i5 or i7 processor to start with, and up to 64 GB of DDR4 at 2666 MHz, Dual DIMM RAM. Then there is the storage, which comes in the form of up to 2 TB that can be configured via dual M.2 PCI Express NVMe SSDs with RAID support. That is a huge amount of blazing-fast storage to play around with, making it easy to work on large and complex files in most programs. The graphics department is where the X1 Extreme might seem to fall short. In theory, with a GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q GPU, it will match the performance of the XPS and the EliteBook, but it cannot compete with the full-voltage 1050 Ti chip inside the Zenbook Pros.

Lenovo is using a tiny (and light) power brick alongside an 80Whr battery in the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, and the battery should charge up to 80 per cent in just an hour thanks to Lenovo’s RapidCharge tech. There is even a fingerprint reader at the side of the keyboard and a Windows Hello camera that can be covered with the ThinkShutter camera cover. Windows 10 Pro is pre-installed, so a user will be able to use the built-in camera to log into the operating system with just their face. For connectivity, a user has got two USB-3.0 ports and an SD-card reader on the right side, which is great for quickly connecting an external storage device or to copy content directly from an SD card. On the opposite side sit two Thunderbolt ports, full-sized HDMI, a network extension port, and a headphone jack. The Thunderbolt and HDMI ports mean that a user can have up to three external monitors connected to the X1 Extreme, which makes it perfect for video editing or working on complex programs that need more screen space. It’s plug-and-play-ready for the leading VR/MR headsets, including Oculus Rift. Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Extreme really does pack plenty of power into a ridiculously slim and lightweight body. For users who are in the market for an on-the-go powerhouse that can also scratch the occasional gaming itch, the X1 Extreme is a great choice.

86.8% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme (i7, 4K-HDR, GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Lenovo expands it ThinkPad X1-series with a 15.6-inch laptop and competes directly with the popular Dell XPS 15 as well as the Apple MacBook Pro 15. The new flagship is equipped with a high-resolution HDR screen as well as a discreet Nvidia GPU. But is this still a business laptop or rather a full-fledged multimedia device with some business features for consumers?

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme is one of the most alluring mobile workstations I’ve used in a long time. The laptop’s slim, lightweight design coupled with a stunning 4K display and high performance make this model a treat for anyone trying to get serious work done while away from the office. Battery life isn’t quite as stellar as some may hope, but the system can still offer several hours on a charge and, thanks to rapid charging, topping up the battery doesn’t take long at all.

Heat's a big problem with the Max-Q designs, since their fans are supposed hit a lower sound volume than their high-test alternatives. Lenovo's addressed that by adding a heat-dissipating aluminum alloy bottom cover to its veteran X1 carbon-fiber body. Otherwise, it's the standard X1 clamshell design.

The more expensive model of the ThinkPad X1 Extreme has been found to be a worthy competitor to the Dell XPS 15 in many respects. Today, the question is whether the same is true for the base model with the i5-8300H and the matte FHD screen. Find out which configuration of the X1 Extreme fares better in this comprehensive review!

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Review: A Workhorse That's Got Game
Source: Hot Hardware English
As configured for our review, there's no question you'll have justify the business case (or pleasure, we suppose) associated with a $3100 laptop price tag, but you do have a fair swath of configuration options to choose from, between its base price and our much more top-end review config. Was Lenovo sandbagging our benchmarks here? Maybe just a tad but it is what it is, as they say, and you can dial things back a bit if this config is too rich for your blood. In the end, the Lenovo ThinkPad Extreme is an extremely well-equipped, powerful laptop with a beautiful 4K HDR display option that delivers workstation and enthusiast-class performance levels in a light, 4lb, extremely well-built machine. As long as you don't mind the relatively short battery life of its high-end display configuration, this new, larger 15-inch format ThinkPad X1 variant will handle just about anything anyone would throw at a laptop these days, and do so with grace and agility.

Source: Engadget English
The four-pound Thinkpad X1 Extreme is surprisingly thin and light considering it has a 15-inch 4K HDR screen and powerful desktop-caliber internals. Add in the trademark ThinkPad keyboard, some incredibly sturdy construction and ports galore, and you’ve got the sort of machine that will satisfy even the most demanding of users. Just don’t plan on wandering too far from a power outlet.

80% Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Extreme Review: The Right Mix Of Work And Fun
Source: The Verge English
The ThinkPad X1 Extreme is one of my favorite laptops of the year. It takes the best traits of mainstream consumer laptops (4K, Dolby, and Precision touchpad), blends it with gaming laptop features (Max Q discrete graphics and HDR), and adds in the best qualities of a business laptop (durability, security, and a low-profile). Of course, it’s not without its faults: the X1 Extreme’s speakers aren’t the best by far, the fans can get noisy, and the aluminum bottom plate can get pretty toasty on your lap.

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme
Source: Hexus English
For me personally, the X1 Carbon is still the sweet spot, with great performance, excellent battery life, and a robust thin-and-light form factor. That isn't to say the X1 Extreme is a bad machine, mind, not by any stretch. This is one of the best 15.6in business laptops I've tested, and it happens to be particularly good for both work and winding down with Netflix.

Overall, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme is an impressive laptop, but is it a Dell XPS 15 killer? That depends. On the performance front, it tracks closely. But where it really shines is weight. While you may scoff at an 8-ounce difference (when similarly configured with touch panels), you'll feel that in your bag and on your shoulder.

There's no doubt that the ThinkPad X1 Extreme is a brilliant laptop. It has a killer performance rivalling any gaming laptop you can buy these days. The signature comfortable ergonomics of ThinkPad series is a delight to live with on an everyday basis. The keyboard will make you want to write just for the sake of using it. And most importantly, the optional 4K touchscreen display is the best you can get in a premium laptop at the moment - this makes even the most mundane tasks interesting.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q: More power efficient version of the GTX 1050 Ti with about 10-15% slower than a normal laptop GTX 1050 Ti.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the GTX 1650 but with reduced clock speeds and power consumption. Uses the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) but without Raytracing or Tensor cores.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). 8850H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.3 GHz (4.1 GHz with 4 cores, 4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). Intel Core i5:
